After a long absence, Easter weekend at the Lairbeck where quality of accommodation and welcome from Jennifer and Malcolm reminded us why we've been there regularly over the years!Excellent breakfast in house, and the super suppers at the Pheasant pub down the lane made this the perfect weekend!!

Stayed here for 2 nights at the weekend. (We love Keswick). A lovely house (history of it is worth checking out). Very comportable and clean. Nice pub a few minutes walk away serving very good food. (Maybe an idea to take a small torch if going to the pub at night, as the road is unlit and quite dark).

Thank you for your review. We need to make two responses for the benefit of potential guest. Lairbeck is classified as a Hotel by Visit Britain. We are not sure which road that you have in mind that is not lit but Vicargage Hill (our road) is very well lit in both directions with street lamps at 30 metre intervals.... More

The Lairbeck is a great place to stay if visiting Keswick and the surrounding area, the accommodation is very comfortable and the location is perfect; only five or so minutes walk from the centre of Keswick. As other reviewers have said, the Lairbeck isn't cheap but there are more expensive guest houses in the area and you will pay for... More

Thank you for your review and your kind comments. Thank you also for letting me know your take on the faults you identified. There are a couple of things that surprised me about your review. First that you presented the two faults you found as simple problems which could have easily been fixed inferring a lack of care and concern... More

We spent 2 nights here over the Valentine's weekend and couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The location was perfect, a 10 minute walk from the centre of Keswick, and the owners wonderful: Malcolm personally greeted us upon arrival and loaned us a Ordnance Survey map for walking, whilst Christine made our full English breakfast one of...

Stayed here for two nights this weekend with two walking chums when we decided on Keswick as one of our bases in the Lake District. A lovely old house just outside the town but comfortably within walking distance - and with a great pub close by. My room right at the top (The Maids Room) had a sloping roof, but... More
